I married well. Sure, he may have a tendency to work a bit too much, and he did throw my favorite little black sweater in the dryer...but all things aside, he is an amazing husband and father. He is the hardest working person I know...both at work and at home. He is a patient, loving, godly and selfless man.

Well, if you know me well- and know my style, you know that the minute i laid eyes on this gem i was smitten. Combined with the savy etsy price it really was a no brainer.
So, as i eagerly await the arrival of my package in the mail, my thoughts drift to paint colors and pillows. I could use some advice....any thoughts my blogger friends?

This is good news...... but not good enough to be taken off of bedrest.
However, my dr. said i could step up my activity level just a notch since nothing is changing. What does this mean? I may now go to church as long as i don't stand around talking afterwards or do anything crazy, I may continue to pick up Stella when necessary, I may do very basic household chores...but nothing wild and crazy like pushing a vacuum or carrying laundry baskets up stairs :)
I'll take it though. At my apt. today, they scheduled my ultra sound, and the earliest they could squeeze me in was 4pm. My dr. went through regular apt. stuff and ended it with checking the babys heartbeat. She tried, and tried, and tried...not to be found. They got me in for an ultrasound right away.....and all was well with the little troublemaker! Praise the Lord! That is all that matters. It's all perspective. Worse case scenario, I will be in this situation for 4 1/2 more months, watching my butt grow rounder by the day :) But I'll take it. I've grown quite attached to this little bugger, and his/her safety is what's most important.

Let me take a moment to share with you a little bit about myself. I am the type of person that always keeps busy....I function my best with a little chaos. If something needs to be done, i just do it...always with another project up my sleeve. I know, having 4 kids makes this more of a necessity than a choice, but i come by it naturally. I am usually the helper, and find great joy in helping others.
So, that being said, being on bedrest has been a truly humbling experience. The Lord is working on me. Rather than "doing", i have to sit my butt down and graciously and humbly accept help from others....who I keep reminding myself find great joy in helping me.
Let me just say what a blessing it has been. We are truly and unbelievably blessed to have so many caring people in our lives! I am amazed and humbled at how many people have offered us help, brought us meals, watched our kids, kept me company, cleaned up our mess, and prayed for us. I thank God daily for all of you dear people!
I go in again tommorow, so i'll keep you posted. My sister and her 4 children came up to keep us company this past week. some pics of course....
There was a 3-way fight for the coupe. stella has been very possesive of her little cozy since they've gone home again :)
